View Full Version : October New Moon Spotting

2017-Oct-18, 11:59 PM
Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. There may be an opportunity for North American observers to set personal records after sunset on Friday 2017 OCT 20 when the Moon will be aged more than one day.

My preview graphics and more detailed article can be found at www.CurtRenz.com/moon.html

Photos and descriptions of the young crescent Moon this month would be welcome additions to this thread.

Below is a photo that I shot from Arlington Heights, Illinois of the Moon aged two days on 2011 OCT 28 at 18:18 CDT.
